I've never heard that particular remark and yeah, i think there are more of us

And i would be pretty surprised if there were any huge led heads out there from the middle east. but hey, prove me wrong i guess

I guess Limeys is

A. A bit old fashioned

B. East coast

It dates from the days when the British Navy found out that eating limes (the green citrus fruit) helped to stop scurvy. (They are packed with vitamin C, a lack of which causes scurvy)

British ships always had a large store of them and sailors had to eat them every day.

So the American folk of the time used to call them Limeys and the name stuck.

Back on topic I'm from East London, England but, no, I couldn't hear the gig from my house. :)
